We were lucky enough to get an invitation to last night’s Friends / Family and Industry Night at the soon to open Ei8ht Ball Brewing located inside the Party Source. As you can see, it was a crowded event, but we managed to get some photos. We plan to get more today at their media event.
The screens on either side and directly behind the bar lists the draft beer available. We loved that the listings looked like chalkboard. The screen opposite the bar has the ability to connect to Skype for allowing brewers and other guests at remote locations to speak at pint nights and the like.
Love the light fixtures over the bar made from growlers.
You can see some examples of the merchandise available in this shot. The glassware they have for serving the beers is really great.
As well as their own beer, the bar at Ei8ht Ball serves many other better beers as you can see from this custom neon from Schlafly.
Gotta love a bar with a bright red porch swing in it. Had to take this picture after Ei8ht Ball closed last night because…
…a local brewer decided to photobomb our first shot. Thanks Scott!
